French Guiana was the by far the most surprising place on my journey across South America. I loved my experience in there!
There are 3 “Guyanas” in South America: 1 French (French Guiana), 1 British (Guyana), and 1 Dutch (Suriname). French Guiana is in the Northern part of South America. Most South Americans I spoke to on my trip had never even heard of the place! But to honest, that is what made it so great!
French Guiana has not been spoiled by tourists. It is naturally beautiful. I didn’t meet a single tourist the entire time I was there. Even when I spoke to backpackers later on my trip, they had never been. I love this type of place. So much!
There was so much to see and do in French Guiana! Imagine a Caribbean coast, with South American hospitality, and French food. Could you ask for ANYthing else in life? It was wonderful : )
